It wasn't really "thanks to me" -- I helped get it off the ground, but really the credit goes to the many EQ2 and SOE team members who helped the project out long after I was gone.

From the survey:

23: How would you rate yourself in terms of physical fitness?

1-- Big fat slob
2-- Not so big, but still a fat slob
3-- Pretty good looking and enormously strong!

24: How healthy are you?

1-- PLEASE CALL 911 I JUST COUGHED SOMETHING UP! IS THAT MY PANCREAS?
2-- I have alot of playing time because I'm always home sick! Win-Win!
3-- I have an amazing constitution and did I mention that I am good looking?

Honestly, aren't most surveys like this purposely skewed in their wording by manufacturers so that any information gleaned from it is not detrimental to sales and/or public relations?

All holy gods. The thing about BMI is /fascinating./ If I'm reading this right? EQ2 players and the general public spend roughly the same amount of time sitting on their backsides in front of a screen, but the EQ2 players are significantly skinnier on average? The average 10 or so hours per week spent in EQ2 instead of watching TV is enough of a difference in lifestyle to make them roughly 1/3rd less likely to be obese? That looks to me less like information about gamers than it does about the negative effects of television.
